International Week

LEARN ABOUT BROCK’S INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY!

Join us November 16 to 20, 2020

International Week is a bi-annual event held each semester to showcase Brock’s diversity.

Our Fall semester is in conjunction with CBIE’s annual International Education Week (IEW) celebrations held worldwide on the third week of November. The event is celebrated in more than 100 countries around the globe.

For international members of Brock’s community, International Week is a great opportunity to represent your home country and highlight unique aspects of your culture to others.

For Brock’s domestic community, it deepens our understanding of the world outside of Canada and provides a valuable opportunity to learn more about cultural traditions and values.

If you have any questions about the activities listed below, please email to Ehima Osazuwa, Brock’s International Student Engagement Coordinator.
